There is no such thing as a bad Dazed & Confused reference. Awesome.
I have watched a much improved UM team march down the field on almost every drive for 3 out of 4 games. And they did it against better teams than we have played.
So you are feeling like you would rather take TTUN's situation right now rather that what we have going with our offense? Seriously?
Always an upvote for an Old School reference.
I agree. I wonder if they are saving this wrinkle for later. It just seems that he would be a natural with his ability to make someone miss.
As long as we keep winning by at least one point, style won't matter and we will remain in the top 4 when the playoffs are announced at the end. The rankings this early in the season do not matter, but it gets especially hard to do when teams get "upset" early on. Upsets early in the season may not look so great later in the year.
Archie Griffin ====== Class!
I would rather see a team after week 2 with things to work on and peaking at the end of the season than the other way around.
It looks like they figured out the secret to winning big games.
Awesome result. Congrats to Coach Herman.
It seems to me that I see a trend among all of our skill players (not just Cardale and JT) that they are trying to make every play into a big play. The battle for playing time gets these guys wanting to make every play into a touchdown and it seems that everyone who handles the ball is pressing a little bit. In any sport, guys play better when they play with a relaxed and confident attitude.
Now I don't think that competition is bad, but this is just a by-product of the competition in the early stages.
I'd like to hear what Joe thinks, too. Then I can compare it to Stanley's opinion. It may be hard to decide which I like better- signed John Cooper.
CC- Great minds think alike.
He probably was wearing a rib protection vest when playing QB that he doesn't wear now. That may be part of the difference in appearance.
I still am wondering if we are going to get to see him return some punts.
It looks like it may just be a slow connection caused the multiple posts.
I heard somewhere that it might come down to signing day. (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
The difference now is that they are getting some more consistent offense. The pitching has been there most of the year. Brantley and Kipnis are finally getting a little help from Santana, Lindor, Gomes, and even Chisenhall (who tends to be streaky). If Almonte keeps hitting, they could sneak into that wildcard game.
The same could be said for the Cavs. The support was low when they were losing also. Only the Browns seem to have consistent support in spite of losing. Maybe less games to attend has something to do with it.
The division is definitely out of reach but they are only 5 games out of the second wild card as of this morning. A good run would at least add some excitement to a disappointing season so far. The SI curse strikes again. Seems like just yesterday that Cory Snyder and Joe Carter were on the cover and they got cursed the first time.
If Santana and Chisenhall keep hitting with Kipnis, Lindor, and Brantley, they almost have the makings of a decent offense. Of course the pitching has been solid for the most part all year. Hopefully, they can make a late run at the wild card. It may be too late though.
I wish I could upvote Fletch even more than once.
This could possibly change the redshirt situation for the true freshman receivers, however if they are needed for this first game.
Did Anzalone go to Florida? He switched so many times that I can't even remember.
Even when he was playing QB full time, I always wondered how he would do as a punt returner because of his ability to make someone miss and accelerate quickly. Does anyone know if that is in the plans?
